Taking over a prime free-standing building on Almomesson Road next to a core shopping area, the Deptford School of Rock is targeting a June 2020 opening. School of Rock is the largest after school music education program primarily targeted at children (but also an Adult program)… with classes starting as early as 2 years old, and heading into the older teen years.
Specifically, the School of Rock building is located just past Bob’s Furniture (somewhat across from Olive Garden) and previously was an insurance office. It sits at the transition point between the busy commercial area, and the start of Deptford residential homes. This previously was an Allstate Insurance office, and that insurance office moved down the road a bit.
The new Deptford branch owner/operator is Matt Glick. Matt attended the Berklee College of Music, is a music producer, a gigging musician for a decade, and a music teacher for more than 5 years.
We chatted with Matt about the Deptford School of Rock:
We’re looking to open up in the first week of June! We’re gonna have an insanely cool grand opening event with live music festivities. Date for that TBD as we get closer to open
